Description

A UNIQUE BOHEMIAN RETREAT NESTLED AWAY ON ST KLEMENT ISLAND AMONGST PINES, EXOTIC SHRUBS AND AROMATIC HERBS. THINK SAPPHIRE SEAS, DESERTED BEACHES AND LAGOONS


Take your pick from colourful bungalows and villas, all built with local stone, decorated thoughtfully in deep vibrant colours, with local sculptures and contemporary artwork. We truly believe St Klement is the ideal base from which you can unwind and explore this incredible archipelago. Spend days swimming and relaxing, and evenings sipping gin and tonics in one of Palmizana’s exclusive waterfront bars. The Meneghello family have a rich history. In 1906, Professor Eugenio Meneghello bought 300 hectares of Croatian wilderness. Three generations on, the Meneghello’s pioneer eco-tourism in Croatia. Dagmar Meneghello, along with her daughters, have turned the island into a unique hideaway, bringing art and nature together in an extraordinary way. This resort has received fantastic press coverage both in The Telegraph and The Huffington Post.

SwimQuest and the Meneghello family are proud and excited to welcome you to an exclusive hideaway on the island of St Klement, also known as ‘Palmizana’ or ‘the island of rosemary’. This island-hopping swimming holiday is an ideal way to explore Croatia at it’s finest. This gorgeous chain of 21 wooded isles boasts sapphire seas, deserted beaches and lagoons, and is set against a stunning botanical backdrop. Palmizana is easily accessible from Split.
